Oprah Plummets in Fortune’s ‘Most Powerful Women in Business’ List

Fortune has published a list of the 5o most powerful women in business, featuring Marissa Mayer, Yahoo!’s CEO, on the cover. Mayer has the coveted front of the magazine, but on the list she came in at 14th. The most powerful woman in business (at least according to Fortune) is Ginni Rometty, the president and CEO of IBM. Mayer is the youngest on the list though, so that’s… Something.

One thing that stuck out about Fortune’s list? Oprah grabbed the 11th spot last year, but plummeted all the way down to 50th this year. Yikes. Maybe OWN should broadcast Keeping Up With The Kardashians to gain some viewers.

Here’s a quick look at some of the other women in media that made Fortune’s list:

#45: Gracia Martore, President and CEO, ­Gannett Co.
#46: Laura Lang, CEO, Time Inc.
#48: Lauren Zalaznick, Chairman, NBCUniversal Entertainment & Digital Networks and Integrated Media, Comcast
